Citrus Mint Cooler

"My grandmother used to make this refreshing drink for those hot Oklahoma summer days. The family would sit on the front porch relaxing while sipping this drink. Here in California, where lemons, oranges and mint are so abundant, my family has found equal enjoyment sitting in the shade and drinking a tall glass of this thirst-quenching cooler."
